One Take Super 8 Event

The One Take Super 8 Event (OTS8) began in 2000, with 20 filmmakers each shooting a single reel of Super 8 film, which then premiered to an audience without the filmmakers seeing their work beforehand. All the films were shown as shot. No cuts. No splices. The popularity of this non-competitive festival has allowed it to return each year with more filmmakers participating. To date over 1000 films have been created for over 50 One Take Super 8 Events across North America!

OTS8 Represents at $100 film Festival

This coming weekend is the 18th annual $100 Film Festival in Calgary, AB. It' s a great chance to see celluloid projections on screen.

The One Take Super 8 Event has a strong presence at this year's event. Of the 44 films being shown at this year's festival 11 of them were made for past One Take Super 8 Events in Regina and Winnipeg (that's a third of all Canadian films in the fest).

So, if you haven't had a chance to see these super 8 originals since their premieres back in 2008/09, here's your chance. (If you can't make it to the festival, I've included links to some that are posted online. )
